I love china and so does my mom so when we joined houses last year, we ended up with quite a collection!
The tea set and the formal set with tea cup, covered bowl, cream, sugar and serving tray all came from Wales. My Dad's parents moved here right before my dad was born and brought some beautiful china. The more formal set was my Grandmothers everyday china.
The oil and vinegar set is from my great Aunt Louise, she got it from a doctor she worked for in the 50's, the candlesticks are a garage sale find these sit out on our banquet most of the time...I like remembering Louise.
The hodge podge picture with the rose tray and little flower salt and peppers are just favorites of mine. I use the teapot as a vase, it reminds me of Marie Antoinette and the salt and peppers are only 2 of a set of 6.
The last hodge podge picture is of some of our coffee cups (sshhh! don't tell anyone but the front cup is actually holding my morning coffee!) These are cups we use everyday....we think we deserve it!
I could go on for days with pics for you but don't want to overwhelm you, I think I will show you more later when I do snippets of my house.
Have a wonderful day and come back and visit again!
